"special" teas

Hi all-

I've been reading about your experiences with the ballerina tea. they don't market this tea as a laxative.....from reading reviews it seems to be an "unspoken understanding" that this is what it is.

I don't need help in that arena, but I would like a natural and safe diuretic. I drink a lot of water/coffee/tea and retain quite a bit of water. Like, A LOT. I know coffee is supposedly a diuretic, but it doesn't work for me like that.

Anybody know of any diuretic teas, or anything really.

BTW, I have been checked out by my doc....no health issues there...I just drink a lot.

if you have been checked out by a doctor and have no health issues, you don't need a diuretic! honestly, that electrolyte/water balance in your body is one of the MOST important things for health and it's pretty delicate. please be VERY CAREFUL fooling around with diuretics of any kind. it's not like you can trick your body into flushing out more water without that having many other effects.

what makes you think you are retaining water?
Often I don't come back to read threads where I've posted. If you want me to see something, please send me a private message. Thanks!

There is a tea by "Traditional Medicinals" called "Weightless cranberry" tea. It is a diuretic. The directions on the box tell you how to take it--not longer than 10 days at a time. You do have to be careful because you don't want to take it long term. But it is what I use on occasion. I find it in my local Kroger grocery store--they have a whole organic section and I have also found it in my Vitamin Shoppe.
